SIG Sauer has added .223 Rem. and .308 Win. full metal jacket (FMJ) training rounds to its Elite Performance line of rifle ammunition. The 55-gr. .223 Rem. load has muzzle velocity of 3,240 f.p.s., with muzzle energy of 1,282 ft.-lbs., and the 150-gr. .308 Win. has a muzzle velocity of 2,900 fps with muzzle energy of 2,802 ft.-lbs.
“We have been inundated with requests for ball ammunition in these popular rifle calibers,” said Brad Criner, senior director, brand management and business development, SIG Sauer Ammunition. “This new SIG FMJ rifle ammunition fills a need for those who want to practice their shooting without paying match-grade prices for competition-level performance.”
